Dear Friends and Followers:

Happy New Year!

I wanted to let you know that I’ve moved to a new blog: gegallaswriterillustrator.wordpress.com. Why? Because I have over 450 posts here and have run out of room!

I’ve been posting to this blog since 2012, so I will miss it. But, honestly, it feels really good to start over with a fresh, blank slate.

I hope you will take a moment to FOLLOW and SHARE my new blog at gegallaswriterillustrator.wordpress.com.

Thank you for your support!

All the Best,

G. E.

Hiatus: Summer 2015

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 12.41.21 PM

As you may know, for the next 6-7 weeks, I will be in New York City to attend the Summer Publishing Institute (SPI) at New York University: School of Professional Studies. This is supposed to be a very intense program, so I’ve decided to put this blog on hiatus while I’m attending.

Don’t worry: I plan on continuing to post on Twitter (@gegallas) and Facebook (facebook.com/gegallas) throughout the coming weeks. Also, once the hiatus is over, I have a number of exciting posts I’ll be able to share with you, including:

  • Photos of my adventures in New York City!

  • New behind-the-scenes images from my graphic novel The Poet and the Flea!

  • Never before seen illustrations from various projects!

  • …and much, much more!!!

Many thanks to my followers for all your support! I’ll be back soon!🙂

–G. E.

May 2015 Update

Screen Shot 2015-05-05 at 11.19.02 AM

  1. After posting one illustration from Scared Stiff: Everything You Need to Know About 50 Famous Phobias every week for 50 weeks, I have finally posted all of the illustrations. You can check them out here: gegallas.wordpress.com/contents/scared-stiff.
  2. By the way, I have a relatively new Tumblr blog called Everything was ZINES, and nothing hurt., on which I promote my fellow writers’ and illustrators’ work. Please check it out here: everythingwaszines.tumblr.com.
  3. This coming weekend, I will be traveling to Yale once again to see my sister’s costumes in a new play called Deer and the Lovers by Emily Zemba and directed by Sara Holdren.🙂
  4. I am very excited to announce that this summer I will be attending the Summer Publishing Institute (SPI) at New York University: School of Professional Studies. Unfortunately, this will probably mean a hiatus for this blog, but I’ll try to keep it as short as possible!
  5. I am also very excited that, through the Summer Publishing Institute, I will be volunteering at BEA (Book Expo America) 2015.
  6. As you may know, for the past few months, I have been working extremely hard on my graphic novel The Poet and The Flea. Currently, I am almost finished inking all 95 pages of the first volume and hope to begin shading everything in as soon as possible. I am also thinking about submitting The Flea directly to publishers within the coming months. Wish me luck!
